Once Upon a Time…….
In the year 2000, Anne Greene brought the idea of a Cookie Walk to the United Methodist Women. She and Lahoma Hart led the first sale as a fund-raiser for UMW missions.
Through the years, the Cookie Walk grew in popularity as people of the community became accustomed to buying delicious and beautiful homemade cookies for the Christmas season.
Eventually, some talented and creative people donated items to be sold and everybody loved the handcrafted gifts and decorations, as well as the homemade jams, jellies, pickles, fudge and other yummy things from the kitchen.
Many years later…….
The Cookie Walk has become a huge annual event, now known as the Warwick Memorial UMC Cookie Walk and Bazaar.
From its beginnings in the Fellowship Hall, the sale now offers over 1200 dozen homemade cookies in the spacious Celebration Center.
Crafts are made throughout the year, and we are proud of all the talented people of our church. Ornaments of every kind, beautiful jewelry, delicate handwork, quilts, fun things and artistic creations are just a few of the things in the craft sale. Goodies for Gifts are always great Christmas presents. A Silent Auction offers unique handmade items for the highest bidder. The United Methodist Men sell their home-cooked peanuts each year and the Honduras Medical Mission Team serves up breakfast and lunch to raise funds for their mission trip. And again this year, the sale of donated plants will benefit the Steeple Fund.
The 2015 Cookie Walk is scheduled for Saturday, December 5th from 9am to 2pm.
Welcome Everyone – Enjoy this exceptional day!
